. gold also had a positive day. but i believe the plunge in gold is a very good sign for the economy, just as it was in the '80s and '90s. in other words, some optimism. and senator marco rubio unveils the new immigration reform bill today. here's the key point. when we look at the benefits and score them dynamically, immigration reform will be a huge boost to the economy. "the kudlow report" begins right now. >>> first up tonight, president obama will travel to boston thursday for an interfaith service with bombing victims. more than 24 hours after two bombs ripped through marathon crowds killing three, wounding 170 others, investigators are still no closer to answers. late this afternoon, the fbi said no claims of responsibility have been received, and the search for suspects is wide open. deborah boxdy joins us now from boston with all of the latest. good evening, deborah. >> reporter: good evening, larry. i'm live here along boylston street in the heart of boston, about four blocks or so away from the marathon's finish line, where those two bombs exploded just one day ago. securi
important than ref knew. i know the economy is soft. therefore revenues is soft. why aren't earnings much more important? why is wall street so obsessed with the revenues? >> the good news, larry, is that even though they talk about the revenue a lot and complain a lot about the revenues, the stock market -- we hit all-time highs this year, and we're up basically for four years in a row now, and that tells me that underneath all of this complaining and fear profits really do matter, and if you look at after hours tonight, i mean, who knows what will happen tomorrow, but the companies that beat on the profits are on the upside tonight in after-hours trading. >> profits are the mother's milk of stocks, i've said it before and revenues are not the mer's milk of stocks. profits are. >> that's absolutely true. isn't it also true, brian, that when you look at fact that in general earnings are coming in pretty good for a large number of companies, we still look at -- look like the best looking girl at the dance, especially when you compare us to other part of the world like europe? >> that's abs
something horrible to happen, or you need a total collapse of the economy. i don't see either. >> well, we're actually talking about two different events. relative to a correction this year, i think that we're looking at something similar to 2011. 10 to 20% off in the second or third quarter, kind of a reaction to this building uncertainty, this volatility we have seen since february. in terms of the bigger crash call that i've been making for more than a year now, as the s&p continues to top out very similar as it did in 2000 to 2007, i think you're right. i think that we are looking at some kind of external shock situation. >> no, no, i'm not -- i'm saying that's what you need to make your forecast right. i'm not predicting that. i don't see the end of the world scenario. i don't buy it. >> and i hope that bernanke -- >> gold signal. i just don't buy it. and so much liquidity -- seema, are you hearing this end of the world -- all right. let's take abigail. 10 to 20% correction. are you hearing that? >> if the fed pulls back on monetary support sooner than expected, i think there are trad
the same with gold. i think the drop in gold is a very positive signal for the longer term economy. but i think these events coming together so rapidly, what went on in boston and the gold crack up and you mentioned commodities, it has given people an excuse to take whatever, 5% to 7% breather in stocks. >> i think that's a good point. what we don't talk about, money coming out of gold is not a bad thing. it's a positive thing in the long run for equities. other commodities especially oil, gasoline prices come down 17% from their peak. i think that's going to be a positive in the economy. so you have to look at the bright side of some of these things. but you're right, it's impossible to separate the emotional from the economic. and we have both going on. a tragedy occurred. it's hard to separate both. >> emotion plays a big role in the stock market. art, thank you very much. we'll resume our coverage of the boston marathon bombing investigation when the kudlow report comes right back. maxwell is not. he's on geico.com setting up an appointment with an adjuster. ted is now on hold with hi
